PHOENIX -- The Diamondbacks knew little about Dodgers left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu before an introductory meeting Saturday, with manager Kirk Gibson calling the game a feeling-out process.
The D-backs felt a little too much of Ryu in the Dodgers 7-5 victory at Chase Field. He held them to three runs in six innings, struck out a career-high nine while commanding four pitches and even had his first three major league hits.
The Dodgers spent 36 million on a six-year contact to lure Ryu away from the Korean professional league over the winter, and it already looks like a bargain. The loss of Zack Greinke for a couple of months suddenly looks a lot easier to bear.
What I've liked about Hyun-Jin, it's almost like he knows he can pitch, and there's a confidence there that you like. That always gets you over a lot of hurdles, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said.

Zack Greinke has a broken left collarbone because Carlos Quentin is an imbecile.
The initial timetable is eight weeks following surgery, and Greinke has traveled back to LA to visit with team doctor Neal ElAttrache and go under the knife.
A CT scan of the left clavicle showed that Greinke needs a rod placed to stabilize and align the fracture. The surgery will be performed Saturday...
Carl Crawford continues to show that he plans to be a fixture on the Los Angeles Dodgers. After being limited to just 31 games in 2012 and having a poor season in 2011, he is off to a fast start this season.
He sent a message to the San Diego Padres that the Dodgers weren’t going to let them use their late-inning rally the night before give them any momentum in this game.

PHOENIX -- We will see if the quick turnaround is long enough for bad blood to turn, although manager Don Mattingly said Friday that the Dodgers will not start anything up when they meet the Padres in a series that begins Monday in Los Angeles.

Even before the Zack Greinke-Carlos Quentin fiasco from Thursday, there was a lot written about the Dodgers throughout the week. Here are some of the links I enjoyed.
Chad Moriyama had a couple of stories regarding the Greinke-Quentin brawl -- one about responding to C.J. Nitkowski's tweet and one about some Padre fan reactions to the brawl.

The Dodger and Padres had one of the more memorable fights in recent years Thursday night, and it appears that the fun is not over yet.
In case you missed it, Dodgers starting pitcher Zach Greinke nailed Padres hitter Carlos Quentin in the shoulder with a pitch. Quentin paused for a moment and appeared as if he was going to do the right thing and just take his base. Then he charged...
